One of Australia's best kept secrets

Compared to the likes of Melbourne and Sydney, Sorrento is certainly one of Australia's best kept secrets. Nestled along the gorgeous Mornington Peninsula coastline, there is a surprisingly number of things to do and see in this small waterfront town. Just moments away from Sorrento vacation rentals you can spend a lazy day on the beach, swim with pods of dolphins, take sports fishing trips from the bay, browse the art galleries or shop till you drop at the many independent boutiques. Sorrento is also steeped in history and you can explore its heritage in the historical museums and sites.

Things to do

Walk through history

When you stay in a Sorrento vacation rental, you're continually reminded of the area's history. A wander down through the 5-mile historical town trail brings you past a fascinating museum, the old Athenaeum movie theater, a long-standing cemetery and the 19th-century Sorrento Park, along with many other historical buildings. While you are in town, visit Watts' Cottage, a quaint building next to Sorrento's museum which dates back to to 1870, and features beautifully laid-out gardens and an excellent restaurant serving up fine Australian fare, as well as access to cycling and walking trails that wind their way up the mountain close by.

Activities

Countless outdoor activities

Sorrento is a fine location for outdoorsy types. For many, jumping into the deep blue to swim with bottlenose dolphins sits high up on the bucket list. In Port Phillip Bay you can don flippers and masks to make this magical experience a reality. While you're there, consider taking the ferry across to Queenscliff, to watch the magnificent melting sunset or board one of the fishing boats to hook in a sailfish or mahi mahi. Alternatively, if all that sounds like too much effort, flop on the beach near your Sorrento vacation rental and soak up the rays.

Weather

Any season is a good season

During the summer months between December and January, families descend upon the town for the holidays. If you plan to visit during this time, be sure to book up your Sorrento vacation rental early or you may very well miss out. Be warned, the temperature around this time can soar and is best spent in and around the water. A more comfortable and quieter time to visit is during fall between March and May. The temperature has cooled somewhat but the weather is still glorious and with less crowds, you may very well have the beach all to yourself.

Natural features

Kangaroos, parrots and cuddly koalas

Sorrento lies along the Mornington Peninsula, a haven for wildlife. While dolphin watching is possible, don't miss the other furry friends which make this part of Australia home. At dusk, you'll be able to spot dozens of kangaroos hoping along Back Beach, or bandicoots and wallabies which slink around in the woodland. If you look up on the cliffs, you may spot one of the many coastal birds and colorful parrots are not uncommon near your Sorrento vacation rental. There's nothing that symbolizes Australia quite like a koala and a large colony can be viewed on nearby French Island.
